* Towards the end of ''Film/MenInBlack'', when Agent Kay gives Jay his neuralizer [[LaserGuidedAmnesia to wipe out his memories]] so he can retire, he tells him "I've just been down the gullet of an interstellar cockroach. That's one of a hundred memories ''I don't want''.". This becomes even more poignant in ''Men In Black III'', in which Kay [[spoiler:failed to save Jay's father in 1968, and needed to neuralize the memories of the young Jay afterwards.]]

* In ''Film/TheLivingDaylights'', while leaving Bratislava, Film/JamesBond says to Saunders "Go ahead. Tell M what you want. If he fires me, I'll thank him for it." In ''Film/LicenceToKill'', [[RogueAgent Bond deserts MI6 to avenge Felix Leiter and his wife]]. Then, in real life, ''Licence To Kill'' underperformed in theaters, leading the franchise into a 6-year long DevelopmentHell which saw Creator/TimothyDalton leaving the series.

** TheReveal of Sitwell and Senator Stern as [[spoiler:HYDRA agents]]. If the first name hasn't been a blow enough, the mere fact that the latter ''wanted'' to confiscate Tony's suit in ''Film/IronMan2'' for the U.S. military is quite a guise for [[spoiler:HYDRA control]]. Making it worse, the U.S. military's immediate action when Colonel Rhodes did acquire Tony's spare suit was to ''weaponize'' it in the name of patriotism. The HYDRA reveal gets even worse with the first issue of ''Captain America: Steve Rogers'' revealing [[spoiler: that Steve himself is with HYDRA and Marvel [[http://www.ew.com/article/2016/05/25/captain-america-villain-hydra-nick-spencer-tom-brevoort confirming]] that he always has been and it's the real Steve acting on his own free will.]]

* Website/TheAgonyBooth made a series of "Movies That Have Predicted Trump" once Creator/DonaldTrump was elected president. Most were articles on LifeImitatesArt, pointing out a few {{Funny Aneurysm Moment}}s, but retaining the site's comedic nature. [[http://www.agonybooth.com/movies-that-predicted-trump-the-dead-zone-1983-51469 Not]] ''Film/TheDeadZone'', where the author sympathized with the protagonist who has haunting premonitions, and found the "politician will start a nuclear war once he becomes president" prediction too plausible to make jokes about.
-->Joking means thinking up a scenario that contains an ironic disconnect from reality, [[TheTysonZone and I canít do that effectively where Trump is concerned.]]

* The original ''[[Film/RoboCop1987 RoboCop]]'' was described by Creator/StephenColbert in 2013 as [[http://www.rawstory.com/rs/2013/07/26/colbert-turns-out-robocop-was-optimistic-view-of-detroits-future/ turning out to be more optimistic than the real Detroit]], which at that point had become the largest city in America to file for bankruptcy. A ''New York Post'' [[http://nypost.com/2014/02/09/robocop-predictions-that-came-true-and-those-that-did-not/ article]] also points out that UsefulNotes/{{Detroit}} has became a bankrupt, crime-ridden place as the one shown in the franchise. It further points out that a NoodleIncident in one of the news reports in [[Film/RoboCop2 the second film]] mentions a nuclear meltdown that destroyed an entire landscape and compares it to the Fukushima Daiichi plant meltdown.
** Also from the second movie, Alex Murphy is compared to the failed attempts to recreate him for the [=RoboCop=] 2 project, with Faxx saying that part of the reason he's still alive is due to his family vaules and being devout Irish Catholic. Come ''ComicBook/RoboCopVersusTheTerminator'', this and the scene of Cain's men stripping Murphy become this as [[spoiler: upon discovering that the technology that made him [=RoboCop=] will also result in [[Franchise/{{Terminator}} Skynet becoming self-aware and Judgment Day happening]], Murphy opted to kill himself to prevent it, only for two Terminators to stop him, and stripping Murphy down to just a head and keeping him alive to force Judgment Day to happen.]]
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fncp0sQvBM0 Call to Arms]] trailer for the first ''[[Film/TheExpendables Expendables]]'' movie reminds you not to watch it off your torrents but "in a [[PrecisionFStrike fucking]] theater where violence belongs". However, the [[Film/TheExpendables3 third movie]] was [[http://blogs.indiewire.com/theplaylist/the-expendables-3-leaks-online-3-weeks-ahead-of-release-20140725 leaked online three weeks prior to release]], with several thousand people torrenting it.]]

* The events of ''WesternAnimation/MonstersUniversity'' make Randall's antagonism towards the protagonists, especially Mike, in ''WesternAnimation/MonstersInc'' a whole lot darker. [[spoiler: not only did they used to be friends, or at least friendly roommates, Mike's advice to Randall to use his invisibility is what helped him become such a good scarer in the first place.]] It also works two ways - [[spoiler: for months, if not years, he'd been beaten out as Scare Leader by a ''college dropout''!]]
